Least explored places on Earth: Top 10 ...

To get to any of the places on this list will be extremely difficult, even in the modern development of the technology will have to do quite a difficult journey. Are you ready to take on Mother Nature? We present you a selection of 10 least-studied places on Earth where nature is preserved in a primitive form, and all processes take their course, without human intervention.

10. Greenland Ice Sheet.

First discovered by Eric the Red, the land is covered by 80% ice. It is believed that the ice sheet, which is 600 square miles in size, melt in about 2000 years at current rates, so you still have a few thousand years, to visit him. Admire the beauty of these places can be in an article about the Greenland ice canyons, or in other articles on LifeGlobe.

9. The northern mountains of Colombia.

Mountains of northern Colombia have been largely studied only by guerrilla fighters and criminals. Because of this, it is difficult to say exactly how much of the mountains was indeed observed and investigated. Most of the local indigenous tribes here are peaceful, and scientists are discovering new species of flora and fauna with each new expedition.

8. The Amazon rainforest.

While the Amazon rainforest is cut down and is actively being developed by man, there still remain places and tribes, untouched by modern civilization. While civilization was withheld dense bush and an abundance of venomous animals, bulldozers and industrial equipment not yet got to the most remote corners, with an abundance of dangerous venomous animals and lush thickets. Unfortunately forests had existed for millions of years being destroyed at an alarming rate.

7. Papua New Guinea.

Papua New Guinea is not only the least researched area, but also the birthplace of the rare fauna and flora, and indigenous peoples, are the subject of curiosity of researchers and uchenyh.Zdes regularly discovered new species and culture, and many more remain undiscovered and unidentified.

6. Namibia.

With 2.1 million population, spread over 300,000 square miles is not surprising that Namibia is known as the least populated country in Africa. For animals such as cheetah and rhinoceros, Namibia - the perfect haven from poachers. This is due to the program for the protection of the natural world, prescribed in the constitution of the government of Namibia. It is the only country in the world that did so.

5. Tristan da Cunha.

Located near the mainland of South Africa, Tristan da Cunha - one of the most isolated islands in the world long just 7 miles. This island temperate climate, which makes it perfect to be a haven of giant elephant seals, shore birds and waterfowl. Tristan hotspot - a region with volcanic activity that forms the islands of the archipelago in the South Atlantic.

4. North-east Siberia (and the Kamchatka Peninsula).

Siberia - one of the parts of Russia, which covers about 70% of the country. However, living here is only 30% of its population. In fact, a large part of the population in Siberia, in one way or another connected with the production of oil.

3. Gankar Punsum.

Mountains Gankar Punsum located at the top of the list of the highest mountains in the world. On the borders of Tibet, China and Bhutan, these high altitudes understudied both because of deletion, and because of the political, social, and spiritual problems between the three countries.

2. Antarctica.
Antarctica is often noted as the world's largest ice pack, not easily accessible to scientists. Recent research in Antarctica became more intense as global warming have the opportunity to be here for longer periods.

1. Mariana Trench.

This region is the world unexplored. The deep sea basin, the Mariana Trench is located near Guam and the Mariana Islands. Only in 2011 the U.S. Navy mapped the Marianas Trench relief from hydrographic ship, using multi-beam echo sounder.
